Contrast, Zen Sauvage's follow up to his debut Subsource release, Inconnu, is a solid body of musical architecture based off the idea of various oppositional mediums in effect throughout our realities and world. This album skirts the boundaries of anti-pop and presents itself as a rare experiment into the ever-increasing underground realm of techno-sculpturalism.
Through the adept manipulation of countless audio design tools coupled with various acoustic instruments played by the artist himself, Jason Corder (Zen Savauge aka Off The Sky) creates a vivid spectrum of emotional variation. He maintaining a delicate balance of noise on melody, creating a tense yet somber journey through a seemingly post-apocalyptic cityscape of techno decay submerged under a watery blanket of pixilated distortion.
"Throughout the planning of this album I had many ideas of where to take the music in order to best represent my base concept of contrasting forces. I finally had to narrow my ideas down by simply focusing on creating an oscillating mood between the tracks. While some tracks are dark and ominous other tracks are light and more comfortable to listen to. It's probably my most bi-polar release to date."

Huch?! Bin ich der erste, der seine Kritik hier hinterlÃ¤Ãt? Dabei steht dieses Album Inconnu in nichts nach. Es ist zwar nicht ganz so ruhig, aber ebenso perfekt. Ohne viel Worte ... einfach nur empfehlenswert.
